We spoke today for the first time since we parted ways.
Your voice sounded smooth- rich and velvety as it always has- but it sounded younger today.
Your deep, southern drawl and slow pace of speech made the words bend and last forever.
Oh, how I’ve missed your voice.
I miss the comfort within each drawn out syllable.
I missed the way it danced on the drums of my ears sending my heart into a frantic rhythmic beat.
I miss the kindness behind each well thought out sentence.
We agreed. We lingered.
And I let you go.
As I will have to do each morning when I wake thinking of your smile and each night when I go to sleep dreaming of your kiss.
Friends until the end.
